    What's your favorite part about prepping?

    What's your favorite part about prepping? For me, its the time spent with my SO. We discuss daily what we've done today, and what we are going to do tomorrow. We also discuss short term and long term goals for our preps. We've been know to get a babysitter for a date night, and spend our dates buying duct tape and MRE's.

    SO, what's your favorite part about prepping?

    People are great. I like people. It's GROUPS of people that are terrible.

    I like the freedom of not relying on handouts when hard times come.

    Big props to this one!

    Any time we end up with more month at the end of the money, we always have our preps, and we get through just fine.
    Just having the safety net is the best part for me.
    If it never gets used in a SHTF situation, it's still worth it.

    AMEN! There's been several times, in the still of the night, that something urgent came up. Stores aren't always open. Bank accounts aren't always flush. SOmetimes, frankly, I don't feel like putting on pants.

    So we grab something from the surplus, add it to our buy list, and replenish next shopping trip.

    I've spent quite a bit of the last 12 months researching class A & C motorhomes as a bugout vehicle.

    Without question, my favorite part is the food! Mrs Inor has become a great cook over the last couple decades and now that she is working with mostly homemade ingredients, it is that much better.

    Yep, took a year or so after I started getting interested, but she's caught up quickly

    First success was during the first Ferguson riots. Most people were doing the mad scramble for bread and eggs, but we just locked the doors and turned on Netflix and the news. Next day people were complaining of being hungry and scared. We were neither.
